A big thank you from the Student Leaders for bringing in cans to help the Cans for Good initiative. As a school we raised 537 cans, which was just a little less than our 600 can target. The winning class will be announced at assembly on Friday. Here's a video the Student Leaders created to showcase the cans collected.
The student leaders are supporting the Salvation Army by organising Cans for Good. They're asking every student to bring in a can (or more) of food, that will be added to the Salvation Army food parcels. They have a target of 600 cans! There will be a prize for the class that collects the most cans. All cans will be collected in classes. The last day to bring in your cans is Thursday 2nd November.

The student leaders have been busy organising their next fun event. On Friday 15th September, come to school in your pyjamas and bring along your favourite soft toy. At lunchtime there will be a range of activities for students to participate in, such as PJ Olympics, craft for your soft toy, a movie quiz and a Best Loved Bear competition and photo booth - just bring a coin donation or a new pair of PJ's. All proceeds will be going to Foster Hope.
On Thursday 25th May the Student Leaders went to the National Young Leaders Day with Mr Miller. They were inspired by a range of guest speakers who shared their experiences and words of wisdom with them. Some of their favourite quotes were:
One of student leaders, Kayla, summed up what all this means to her as a leader:
"Nobody's different, they're unique. Be yourself - if you like yourself, everyone else will too. I am myself, there's no one else like me and there is only one of me. If you want to believe, believe in yourself. No matter how many people or how many times people say no, it's OK to keep going. Don't take no for an answer. Make a difference in the world. Sometimes when you're uncomfortable, it can come with huge rewards. Go for it! Get off your technology and live the world's beauty. Only you have to live with the consequences, nobody else. Stand up for yourself and stand up for others."
